Magnolia-licious Challenge Anchors Aweigh

Hello everyone and I am so happy you came to my blog today.
I will not be posting for a while as the final stages of our home require me to be equally responsible for the work.  Exciting but exhausting.  I am so slow and with a blank canvas sometimes my paint choices have been wrong so I painted a few rooms twice because I didn't like the paint colors. lol  The flooring is going down and most of it is tile. Then the doors and trim need to be painted and the electrician needs to finish his job, final plumbing and who knows what we will come across yet.  We figured the house would be done late August.
I will show you photographs of it before we move in.  Then the decorating begins, of course I have purchased some of that already, just can't wait! 

My card is for the Magnolia-licious Challenge Anchors Aweigh, team A already has awesome inspiration for you.  Remember if you comment on everyones blog you are eligible for a special prize from Diana. 

Yes the photos are not great but when we move I will be able to have what I need to make them crisp again.  I miss my photo booth and Nikon camera.

Tilda is colored in Distressed Inks and then I Frantaged all around the background. Made a sandy beach. lol

The flowers are WOC and Kort and Godt. The pin I purchased from Etsy and fellow crafter Mandy Stacey.  I love decorative pins but I cannot make them so I am happy to purchase these from Mandy.

Please join us for the current challenge Anchors Aweigh, see you there!

One day I found this beautiful moth behind our TV, it did not make it but will be part of my craft room. 


  1. Kelly you did a fabulous job on this beauty! How exciting to be so close to moving back into your home. Have fun on the finishing touches and I can't wait to see your pictures.
    Hugs, Cathy

  2. I don't know what to be happier about....this sensational card or the great update on the house. I am so happy to see your latest creation and completely giddy about the progress. Sad deal about the moth though, so happy you're keeping it for observation though...that is GORGEOUS!!!
    Big hugs to you,

  3. You sure have been through a lot in the last couple of years Kelly. I am still reeling from our move not to mention going out of the country for a while.
    Kelly your coloring is wonderful - looks so good. Wish I lived closer so I could take some lessons from you. I think you ought to do some You Tube lessons!!
    Your card is beautiful -but your coloring is the star!!!!
